The Indianapolis Colts will travel to Pittsburgh to play the Steelers on NBC Sunday Night Football. Game time is set for 8:30 p.m. at Heinz Field.

The contest will mark the 22nd all-time meeting between the teams in the regular season, with the Steelers holding a 15-6 advantage. The last matchup came on October 26, 2014 in Pittsburgh when the Steelers defeated the Colts, 51-34.

Last week, the Colts hosted the Buccaneers and defeated Tampa Bay, 25-12.

Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck completed 26-of-42 passes for 315 yards and two touchdowns for a 100.8 passer rating. He also extended his record to 4-0 as a starter this season and joined Warren Moon (1997-98) and Brett Favre (2009) as only the third quarterback in the Super Bowl era to win four consecutive starts at the age of 40 or older.

After entering halftime with a 12-6 deficit, the Colts defense held the Buccaneers scoreless in the second half. Wide receiver T.Y. Hilton caught two touchdown passes and kicker Adam Vinatieri connected on field goals of 26 and 44 yards to give the Colts 19 unanswered points to preserve their third consecutive victory.

Defensively, Indianapolis was able to provide pressure and sacked Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston five times. Outside linebacker Erik Walden led the team with 2.0 sacks.

Following Sunday night's game, the Colts will travel to Jacksonville for an AFC South tilt with the Jaguars.
